This is the latest in the range of collaborative beers by Rocky Head and retailer Oddbins. It’s really good. The idea was to make the ultimate summer beer, and I think they’ve achieved it. Brewer Steve Daniel is a former Buyer for Oddbins, which is where he made his name. The brewery is based in Southfields, near Wimbledon.
Rocky Head Brewery and Oddbins No 5 Saison
With added lemongrass, mandarin zest, passion fruit and coriander seed. Yellow in colour with nice fresh citrussy fruit and some herby notes, together with a hint of earthiness on the finish. Bright and zesty with fresh, fruity, slightly spicy aromas and flavours. Very satisfying. 8/10
